Let's hope it isn't the last either.

John X. Beidler and his Ballard


Winchester. Early lowall?


Oh my, I think Westerner and Mr, Tip Up are spot on and the gentleman is indeed holding an early low wall.

Guess I could blame the provincial government decision to cancel all elective surgery in honour of covid-19, which has put the brakes on my upcoming cataract surgery, for the misidentification. Now Mr. Tip Up is not the only one with egg all over his face. In fact, mine has rundown all the way to my four piece boots.

In hopes of redeeming myself, and for your amusement, I am attaching a photo of what I think is a Ballard, or perhaps itís a Stevens. 

Happy July 4th to all the Yanks!

Regards,
Powderman

I'd have taken her campin despite them dainty city kicks. Good picture, and that is a Ballard.   Smiley


  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

Cool if slightly surreal photo, powderman. and, yes, that rifle is a Ballard.† I particularly love the fringed leggings that almost hide her shoes; as Joe says, "dainty kicks" that you'd hardly go "frontiering" in.

Last week at the family supper 'Alice', in the pic holding her grandpap's trapdoor, refused to hide her spiked hair, but consented to wearing mom's sweater to cover her tattoos. I think she lives around here, I see her every time I go to Walnuts.
Good pictures, guys

The girl with the hair bow seems to be holding the a standard pre-Winder .22 high-wall musket, complete to the sling.  The other girl's musket is harder to type - rear sight gone, custom target sights, and a custom but still military-style forearm.  Is it likely any photographer would have two such props?

Maybe not part of a woman and girls chores were to put food on their table and at times to sell to others. One has to look back in order to realize just how important a rifle and a shotgun were to a families survival. Is was not just the men who were out shooting game they were more typically working the land and doing what ever else that was required to establish and maintain a homestead during that time. I remember one of my aunt's who grew up in the hills of Lompoc Ca. we're they deer were plentiful. Dad was a wheat farmer his son's the same and It was the girls who hunted, processed the meat and the hung slices of marinated meat on the barbwire fencimg to make jerky. They used cayanne pepper to keep the flies off and she made the best dear jerky that I have ever had.

If you notice on the breasts they wear what appear to be medals, I always took these two as school shooters back when you could actually take a gun to school and the schools had shooting teams, of course it could be something different.

How could I have missed the medals, three each yet?  45govt has a very discerning eye, and I'd bet he's exactly right.

I suspect the Winder muskets the young ladies are holding were used to win the Winchester junior rifle corps medals pinned to their chest.
At least that's my suspicion.

Since both young ladies have three medals, I'm going to bet they have made it all the way through the Junior Rifle Corps' ranks from "Marksman" to "Sharpshooter" to "Expert Rifleman", indeed an accomplishment worthy of a memory-preserving photo.

For the record, I have discovered since posting in Reply #7, this is a photo of B.K. O'Dwyer.
